Actor Agam Darshi stars as Officer Khali Bhatt in CTV’s original undercover Cop Drama ‘Played’ premiering October 3rd

Agam recently won a Leo Award for her role in “Crimes of Mike Recket”

The Promotion People - Agam Darshi

Leo Award winner Agam Darshi plays Officer Khali Bhatt – “The Truth Teller” in CTV’s original undercover cop drama ‘Played’. The heart pounding premiere, entitled “Drugs” will be aired Thursday, Oct. 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV.

Set and shot in Toronto, the high-risk drama “Played” tracks an undercover police unit as it infiltrates criminal organizations through different case stories/”plays”.
Agam’s character Officer Khalil Bhatt is an urban and young undercover cop attracted to the adrenalin, intensity, and dark glamour of her work. Khalil proves to be a real asset for the team with her honestly, directness, and effortless skill with technology. Outside of work, Khali is an extrovert – chasing the next party, the next cute guy, the next sunrise after an all-nighter. “Played” also stars Gemini Award-nominee Vincent Walsh, Chandra West, Lisa Marcos, Dwain Murphy, and Adam Butcher.
It has been an exciting year for in-demand actress Agam Darshi winning the Leo Award for Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Motion Picture in the feature “Crimes of Mike Recket”.

Showing her talent behind the camera, Agam made her directorial debut in the nine-minute short film “Fade Out”. The BravoFact short film follows an aging actress, who is desperate to keep herself together on the night of her movie premiere. “Fade Out” stars Ona Grauer, Adrian Holmes, Chelah Horsdal and David Lewis.

Agam was previously nominated for 2 Constellation Awards for her role on “Sanctuary”, a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Ensemble for her role on “Dan for Mayor”, and a Leo Award for Best Supporting Actress in the film “Excited”.

Agam’s other notable credits include a principal role as Aparna in the Blockbuster film “2012”, a recurring role on “The L Word”, a lead in “Haunting on Soroity Row” (alongside Gossip Gil’s Leighton Meester), as well as roles on “Snakes on a Plane” and “Final Destination 2”.
Agam, who was born in England, has been raised all over Canada. She has lived in Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary, and Vancouver. She now splits her time between Vancouver and Los Angeles.

Actor Agam Darshi’s Role in “Crimes of Mike Recket” Garners Industry Acclaim with Latest Leo-Award Nomination

The Promotion People Agam Darshi

Canadian actor/director and all-around talent Agam Darshi has been nominated for a Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Motion Picture award at the 2013 Leo Awards (which take place June 7th & 8th, 2013). The nomination for Agam came from her performance in the feature “Crimes of Mike Recket”. It’s been an exciting year for the in-demand actress, who among her other high profile recent appearances and new roles, directed her first film (which she also wrote). She worked alongside some of the country’s top leading ladies (Crystal Lowe and Sandy Sidhu, who produced the project) to bring the BravoFact short film “Fade Out” to life. She will also be seen this fall in the new CTV series “Played”, currently in production.

Agam is thrilled to again be nominated at the Leo’s (which honour the best in British Columbia’s television and film), but she is no stranger to industry nods: She has been nominated for 2 Constellation Awards for her role on “Sanctuary”, a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Ensemble for her role on “Dan for Mayor”, and previously for a Leo Award for Best Supporting Actress in the film “Excited”.

The Promotion People Agam Darshi

The buzzed-about actor is currently in Toronto shooting “Played”, a new police drama series which airs on CTV this fall. “Played” follows an elite undercover police unit set up to infiltrate otherwise impenetrable criminal worlds. These cops (led by Deception’s Vincent Walsh) perform high-wire acts, nerve-wracking confidence games or “plays”. Agam’s character’s greatest assets: blunt honesty and an effortless skill with technology.

The Promotion People Agam Darshi

Agam’s directorial debut in “Fade Out” gave her a chance to show her talent behind the camera. The nine-minute film (also written by Agam) stars Ona Grauer, Adrian Holmes, Chelah Horsdal and David Lewis. It follows an aging actress, who is desperate to keep herself together on the night of her movie premiere.

Agam’s other notable credits include a principal role as Aparna in the blockbuster film “2012”, a recurring role on “The L Word”, a lead in “Haunting on Soroity Row” (alongside Gossip Gil’s Leighton Meester), as well as roles on “Snakes on a Plane” and “Final Destination 3”.

Agam, who was born in England, has been raised all over Canada. She has lived in Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary, and Vancouver. She now splits her time between there and Los Angeles. She has been writing and producing films since her graduation from the Studio 58 Film Arts program at Langara College—and has been on a steady rise in the industry, with fans from around the globe.
